    Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of Zimbabwe’s opposition MDC-T party, is launching his campaign for next year's general election.

    It is his fourth challenge to 93-year-old Robert Mugabe, who has been president since 1980.

     

    Mugabe’s Zanu-PF party is also campaigning to win the youth vote, as a high unemployment rate, serious cash shortages and a breakdown of social services have left many seeking real change in government.
